About this Research Topic
The goal of this Research Topic is to find the most practical and efficient interventions to tackle burnout in a healthcare setting.
Studies on burnout are progressively focused on the prevalence of burnout in different healthcare staff as well as the contributing factors. Although these studies may be useful for planning and policymaking, the prevalence is estimated to be between 30 and 50 percent (depending on the study group and the research tool used). It seems to be more important now to focus on the interventions that practically help the authorities to reduce this problem. These interventions could be categorized as individual, organizations, or mixed. Although mixed interventions seem to be better, there is no consensus on the most efficient ones.
This Research Topic invites papers on the following topics:
• Effective, practical interventions at the organizational level to address physician burnout
• Interventions that are effective, practical, and implemented at the organizational level to combat nurse burnout
• Effective organizational and individual level interventions (mixed) to tackle burnout in healthcare staff
Keywords: burnout, healthcare, interventions, staff
